The sun is out, and we’re ready to bask in it! As much as everyone loves to soak up the sun, don’t soak up too much. Remember to protect your skin with a healthy layer of sunscreen. We want you to enjoy that bright, sunny day - without feeling the burn.

Beach Bag:

June 21st is the first day of summer. You know what summer means? Beach season, baby! The beach comes with a lot of fun necessities - beach towels, sunscreen, sunglasses, cold brew tea - the list can go on and on. Therefore, you need the ultimate beach necessity: a beach bag! Conveniently carry all of your beach essentials with ease, and make sure it’s a bag you don’t mind getting a little sandy. Our tip? Make sure your go-to beach bag can zip completely shut; this way, you have minimal sand getting in to your bag. 

Iced Tea:

June is Iced Tea Month; you’ve got to celebrate! Sip on delicious teas that are a flawless summertime fit. Try Blueberry Wild Child or Chunky Watermelon for a fruit-filled impact. Citrus Sunburst will have you walking on sunshine. Blackberry Bellini and Pineapple Sangria are amazing as summer cocktails. Can’t make up your mind on which iced tea to start with? Don’t worry; our Iced Tea Sampler Dry Flight is the best way to try multiple teas that are perfect for pouring over ice!


We hope that these "June Necessities" will have you feeling the summer spirit! Want to join in on the action? Join us on Instagram and comment what your favorite necessities and Tiesta Tea blends are.
